Active Mums and Bumps

Specifically designed blended walking and low impact exercise class  (indoors) for new mums together with their babies, to return to fitness, and keep fit and active following birth in a safe, fun and effective way.  We pay particular attention to posture, back care and daily living activities.  Babies can work out with mum in baby carriers (bring your own or we can supply, and are baby carrier peer supporters ) or in buggies where space allows.

Did you know that being active following birth has so many health benefits for you and your baby, and it is also fantastic fun!
